Since childhood, if there’s one person I have admired, it is my mom. Now, for all children their mother is the driving force, the shoulder to cry on, the light at the end of the tunnel. And mine is no different. I myself am a mother, and now when I think back, I am just amazed at how she brought us sisters up, without contending herself in any way.
I have learned (and still do) a lot from her. She is the epitome of patience, tolerance and relentlessness. She still amazes me with her strong personality which doesn't seem to fade away with age, not even a tad bit. She is a self made person. A fearless, confident woman who faced new challenges totally out of her comfort zone and after a lot of learning and unlearning, emerged victorious. The best thing about her is that till today, she never shies away from learning. Even if it is from a toddler!
Probably she is this way because she witnessed my grandmother putting up a brave face in front of her eight children early on when my grandfather passed away unexpectedly. Without any regular source of income, my grandmother made sure all her children went to school, at a time when feeding them on a daily basis was a challenge. My mom grew up the hard way and probably that taught her the most valuable life lessons that she respects till today. That is the reason she used to hate it when we wasted food or made faces if we didn't get our favorite meals. That is the reason she is so fearless and tackles any situation with absolute courage and determination. That is the reason she competes with herself every day, to challenge herself so that she can be a better person in order to help others in need.
For me, my mom is divine. She possesses these qualities that elevate her to a godly status, I reckon. If you ask her friends they would describe her as the friendly, the ready-to-help person, who doesn't expect anything in return. To see such qualities in today's world, is a rarity, don't you think?
She tries to inculcate her qualities, her knowledge as far as possible in me. But being the lazy one, I hardly can match up to her. But there are certain things that have, thankfully, brushed on to me. One is to be true to myself without knowingly hurting anyone. As much as possible, I try not to cause any trouble to anybody. If I need to get something done, I will do so to the best of my ability no matter how difficult it may seem without taking any help from others. I like to be punctual, honest and genuine and these are some virtues that I have learned by merely observing my mom. Of course, if I can be even half of what she is one day, I would be in complete awe, if I may say so myself!
My mom is the one person who is made of greatness, who leaves a lasting impression on anyone who meets her. Simple, trustworthy and loving. That's what she is. I love you, mom!
Many such people are made of great. And a combination of such qualities can only result in more greatness. Like the association of Lionel Messi and Tata Motors. Both known for their reliability and trust, their joint commitment and conviction can only make lives better. Check out this link: TataMotors.
